Everything You Need to Know About Robotech - io9

Everything You Need to Know About Robotech - io9 | Cartoons for Kids | Scoop.it
Everything You Need to Know About Robotech
io9
When Robotech first aired in 1985, kids could tell it was massively different from He-Man, G.I. Joe, and even the Transformers cartoon,.
Marc Morrell's insight:

There are some pretty strong statements in this article. Some I agree with, some I don't. But you can't dispute that Carl Macek effectively created Robotech by licensing three shows, and rewriting them to 1) make sense for American audiences, 2) be acceptable for young American audiences, and 3) make some kind of coherent sense together.

John DiMaggio, Voice of Bender in Futurama Reveals How to Break Into the Voice Acting Industry | Show Business Show

John DiMaggio, Voice of Bender in Futurama Reveals How to Break Into the Voice Acting Industry | Show Business Show | Cartoons for Kids | Scoop.it

"John DiMaggio, world-renowned, Emmy-nominated, and Annie Award winning voiceover actor, dishes the details about how to break into the voice acting industry and climb to the top...the Hollywood star [reveals] what it takes to win over both casting directors’ and fans’ hearts, how to book gigs, and who to maintain relationships with to reach success in the acting and voiceover industry."

Marc Morrell's insight:

I interviewed John at San Diego Comic-Con in July for Adventure time, where he plays Jake the Dog. This man is an absolute professional, and a really cool guy. I can't wait to see his documentary, I Know That Voice.

Sirenetta Leoni's curator insight, August 27, 2013 5:51 PM

This interview with voice actor, John DiMaggio, goes into much more detail about the business and marketing end of voice acting than your usual celebrity voice actor interview. While there's a bit of confusion around the "one thing you must do to succeed in voiceover"---John actually names four or five things as the "one thing you must do" over the course of the half-hour interview---he still makes several excellent points. Among these, the mindset you need to develop to handle a lot of rejection; having all your demos and marketing produced, ready-to-go and easily accesible; and the importance of having key people inside the industry (casting directors, agents, etc.) who are willing to go to bat for you.

 

Our favorite quote from the interview: "If you're doing this for the money or because you want to be famous, I don't want to know you."

 

John also gives a status update on the soon-to-be-released  "I Know That Voice" documentary he's producing, or as he refers to it, a "love letter to the incredible professional voice actors I have the privilege of working with with every day."
